More Options .... in Hardanger:Inside border




Have done a little more on my hardanger project. What you see is the inside border all around the kloster diamonds. I took my time and counted and recounted to make sure that there would not be any mistakes left once I finished that inside border as it is much easier to undo at this stage. It is just so easy to make mistakes when you work on a project like this. Either you miscount or you simply enter the wrong hole. That happens sometimes when the thread of the fabric is especially thin. At this point, I feel pretty confident that everything is as should be, so will now proceed with the outside border done in blanket stitch.

I must say that I always enjoy myself a lot when doing hardanger and Dale Sokolow's designs are all quite special. This is my second one of hers and a third one will soon be on its way to me :-)

Before that, I had taken Marion Scoular's beginner's hardanger course and I am so glad I took that one as it gave me a good basic knowledge of how to do hardanger making it so much easier to do the more advanced projects.

Elisabeth,

No matter how much I do, for me, it is just never enough, probably because my list of things to do is just so so so long :-(
